‘Designing Women’ reboot in the works

Sony’s acquired Georgia on its thoughts.

TVLine has discovered completely that the studio is growing a reboot of the basic ’90s sitcom “Designing Girls,” with the collection’ authentic creator, Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, shepherding the replace.

The undertaking is predicted to be taken out to the market quickly.

The information comes roughly one month earlier than CBS is ready to launch a revival of “Designing Girls‘s” former time slot companion, “Murphy Brown.”

“Designing Girls” debuted on Sept. 29, 1986, and ran for seven seasons, earlier than concluding on Could 24, 1993.

It centered on the lives of 4 girls (performed by Dixie Carter, Delta Burke, Annie Potts and Jean Good) who labored at Sugarbaker & Associates, a design agency in Atlanta.

Meshach Taylor co-starred as eccentric assistant Anthony Bouvier. It’s not clear if any authentic solid members would seem in the new incarnation (Carter and Taylor died in 2010 and 2014, respectively).

Effectively-publicized tensions between Burke and Bloodworth-Thomason led to the former’s exit at the finish of Season 5.

Good departed alongside Burke and the pair had been changed in Season 6 by “Newhart’s” Julia Duffy and “Saturday Evening Dwell’s” Jan Hooks.

In its seventh and remaining season, Tony winner Judith Ivey changed Duffy.

A Sony rep has but to reply to TVLine’s request for remark.
